Or to turn back from following after you;
For wherever you go, I will go;
And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
Your people shall be my people,
And your God, my God.
Where you die, I will die,
And there will I be buried.
The Lord do so to me, and more also,
If anything but death parts you and me.”
As Christmas Day approaches, only a few months away, I find myself feeling surprised at whom God has placed on my heart. Over the past year, my loyalty and love has grown very strong towards my mother-in-law. But, I haven't always felt this way.
Approximately 6 months after my personal testimony was released to the public http://dlouyoung.blogspot.com/p/store.html my daughter read the above chapter out loud to my mother-in-law. As God would have it, the healing process had begun. And only one year later, I sat side by side with my mother-in-law at my daughter's high school graduation. God had answered my prayer to heal our relationship! Scripture is true; God loves loyalty and bestows his blessing and favor when we are loyal and quick to forgive others.
